Pirates?

So I just happened to upload this picture on to my flickr pages in the early hours of the morning, not because of talk like a pirate day, but as part of my general sorting out of my photos taken over the Summer. However because of the pirate theme, it has made it’s way onto the “Interesting” page on flickr!

We had stopped at Melrose Abbey on the way back from Katherine and Colin’s wedding, and I took this picture while walking about on a fine sunny day.

Long Time No Update…

It’s been a long crazy summer and I’ve not had time to update this for a while. Hopefully I’ll get all my photos’s uploaded this week though. Here are July’s highlights:

Sunset Down Under.

We made it out the office early enough on Saturday evening to catch the sun going down on the beach. This is the wooden rollercoaster at Luna Park.

Sunrise Down Under

Still jet lagged, I woke up ridiculously early at 5am, and walked into the office as the sun was rising

Spring Has Arrived

First Blossom Of Spring

We went on a cycle ride around town today in the Sunshine and Rachel spotted the blossoms on this tree. I definitely feel that spring is in the air, especially as we’ll start to get more sunshine in the evenings when the clocks go forward tonight

My Space…

Right I have to admit I not a big fan of myspace. I don’t like the fact that every page seems to make noise. I have my own music/tv/whatever happening and I don’t like the intrusion. Then there are the awful templates that most people seem to apply to the page. Despite this it does seem to be one of the most popular websites in whatever country you look, so I have an account. I was looking round yesterday to see if anyone from my old School was on and I spotted the fiollowing: It may be minor, but the profile Updated is shown as {ts ‘2007-02-06 13:06:06’}. The whole {ts ‘ ‘} thing shouldn’t be displayed, this is just shoddy. Furthermore I just tried to run the same search and recieved an error: ** Sorry! an unexpected error has occurred. This error has been forwarded to MySpace’s technical group.** So maybe they’ve taken down the serach facility to fix these kind of errors, but this isn’t the first time that I’ve seen these errors and you would expect the quality of a site the size of myspace to be much better.
